What was the first Pokemon you ever caught?

The first I ever caught on a game I owned I believe was a Hoothoot on Route 29 in Gold.

The first I ever caught in general was a Zubat in Mt. Moon when I took my cousin's Yellow version without permission haha.

Fletchling, not that it lasted particularly long before being swapped out.

I think it was a Pidgey in Red, but it's hard to remember that far back.

Bonus answer: A Purrloin in White when I got back into the franchise after an 8-year hiatus.

A Pidgey in Pokémon Blue, who I've also brought as Pidgeot to the Hall of Fame (and level 100 too).

Not counting starters... probably a Ratata or Pidgey in Yellow. I remember first encountering Nidorans soon after and thinking how cool they looked.
 
Hmmm what are these creatures and do I splat them?

A Hoothoot in Gold, I think. I remember it was night because I had no idea what Daylight Savings was when that prompt came up at the beginning of the game so I just chose a random time.

I do remember my first shiny Pokemon I caught. It was a Caterpie in Pokemon Gold.

The Poochyena in AS. It . . . was pretty weak to be honest.

I think it was a Poochyena in Emerald way back, but I’m not sure.

I eventually made a running gag out of capturing an uncanny amount of Poochyena just so I could name them complaints on having captured them.

I was a great pet owner, why do you ask?

Sentret in Pokémon Silver. I caught it because I thought it was cute, but didn't use it because it's Normal-type and I was convinced that it was the weakest type.

It was a Kanto mon since it was Pokémon Blue but I truly have no idea which one. I think it might have been a Pidgey?
